A Home Office spokesman defended police budget cuts:
"As a service spending some £14 billion a year it is right for the police to make their contribution to reducing the record budget deficit.
"Existing police pay and conditions were designed more than 30 years ago which is why we asked Tom Winsor to carry out his independent review.
"We will continue to ensure that police officers are rewarded for doing an exceptional job."
Home Secretary Theresa May was heckled and booed by police officers calling for her to resign at the Police Federation conference.
The Home Secretary was heckled as she said changes to pay and conditions should be welcomed by hard-working police officers.
